With the twelve, they are still, the candidates who are allowed to prove Friday night in the first liveshow of ‘The Voice of Flanders’. The youngest, but certainly not the least striking of the gang, William Lacroix from Bocholt. “My audition was a bit stiffer because I was nervous, but after that it's all pretty fast gone,” he says. “And now to hope that I by those first live shows can struggle. I hope there will be anyway something from the bus. A record deal would be nice, so I songs recording in the studio.”
The fastest way to that is to obtain ‘The Voice’ win.
I don't think that will happen. I believe in it, but somewhere not. ’t Is double. (let a silence fall) I think all of me is still too young to be the winner of such a program to finish. I find myself also still young, but I feel that I am ready for it. Now the rest of the audience convinced.
Who do you see as your biggest competitor?
I think Ibe. That also comes from the province of Limburg and is also in the Team of Koen, but he is a very different type than me and has a different timbre. I think he is even more in the taste with the public.
with the new rules of the game, there is a chance that Koen with two finalists to the last live show. That opens up prospects for you.
Yes, maybe. But I go on it time see what happens. I would prefer not to be in advance of all proposals and begin to speculate, because if it is disappointing, the disappointment that much greater.
You are in any case not go unnoticed. As you come openly to you guys. That dare is not just any sixteen-year-old.
Why should I hide that I'm gay? There is absolutely no reason to hide.
You would be far from the first gay that nasty comments should came easily to me.
There are always a few, but the most comments I get are positive. And the negative I pull anything to me. I do not let me down or affect by a few nasty comments.
When did you know that guys?
Last year somewhere in november, that realization was just there suddenly. From one day to the other. But my parents were around much longer, though. They make there not actually a problem. I also don't see why that would be.
You said earlier that you are dreaming of paparazzi at your front door. You think that's really so nice?
I would especially like a confirmation to see that I have made. Allez, ‘made’, that sounds a bit boastful. I mean mainly that it's a sign that the people made me a great find and happy to listen to me. I've seen it on tv said: I would really love an international break.
do Everything step by step. You will have a music career or can combine with school?
I follow still Drama - Drama in Hasselt and I will continue to do so. The school, still for, say, mom and dad, and I think that they are right. I'm a bit busy with appearances and interviews and so on, but that is than reading. With the live shows will now all hands on deck, but fortunately that is over before the exams start.
You have played for in the Studio 100 series ‘Lollipop Lolbroek’. Hope your new acteerkansen?
In ‘Lollipop Lolbroek’ can't do that, because the sequence is stopped. But Studio 100 me always call again. I would really like to present, or a roll in a musical, interests me also. I have in ‘14-18’ a small role. But well: first, the live shows of ‘The Voice’. To me prepare, I go as much as possible, try to remain silent. But that is not easy, because I am rather eager to attend. (chuckle)
